Four men has been sentenced between five and 15 years in jail, by a French court, for plotting an attack on Paris’s emblematic Champs Elysees avenue.
A fifth walked free as he had already served his term in pre-trial custody.
The five defendants were aged 17 to 39 when they were arrested in 2019 for allegedly planning to attack policemen and
possibly civilians on the avenue not far from the presidential palace.
All except one were found guilty of “terrorist conspiracy” on Thursday after a trial held behind closed doors
